Madonna is working overtime to keep herself in the news the past few days. First she mocks Lady Gaga songs in concert, not once, but twice. Now, she strips down to a skimpy top and flashes the concert audience in Istanbul, Turkey a nipple, simply for a little political controversy in the Muslim nation. It well could be a little political message in response to Lady Gaga’s concert show being canceled because of Muslim extremists in Indonesia. Likely, the little incident will be heavily discussed in Turkey and could even make it a little harder for some more controversial acts to play concerts in that Muslim nation.

A little controversy helps to keep Madonna in the news as well. Rather than just being labeled as “the Britney Spears for old people”, controversy makes her seem like a young brat, which is a fairly good achievement for the aging 53 year old entertainer.
